WWE has been making a big noise about the upcoming Crusier Weight Classic tournament and everyone is highly excited for this- even me as this features some huge names and should be a great tournament; as we love to watch crusier weights fly. So here are the official introductions.
This tournament has some huge independent names such as Zack Sabre Jnr (My moneys on him to win!), Johnny Gargano, Cedric Alexander, TJ Perkins and Noam Dar mixed with some world renowned talent like Brian Kendrick and Kota Ibushi. Watching them all step into a WWE ring for the tournament introductions is awesome, and only helps get me more excited for the shows WWE Network debut on July 13th.
